Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS has just created a profile on the Scientists Without Borders community. This organization aims to mobilize and coordinate science-based activities that improve quality of life in the developing world. A wide variety of institutions and organizations are promoting environmental and developmental solutions, but often current communication gaps restrict their power. Organizations and individuals do not always know about one another's endeavors, needs, or availability, which limits the ability to forge meaningful connections and harness resources.

APECS hopes that with our experience in a variety of physical and social sciences, education & outreach experience, and a history of building a large and international communication largely based around web tools will provide a valuable way to create future collaborations and opportunities. You can read more about Scientists Without Borders on their website or in this Nature Chemical Biology article.
